We are delighted to invite you to this year’s regional conference which takes place in Southend on the 18-20th November 2016.
We have an action packed agenda planned with both the Leader and Deputy Leader of the Labour Party in attendance over the course of the weekend. Last year’s event was the busiest in years and we expect this year to be even bigger.
Places for the event are strictly limited so book now to avoid disappointment. Delegates and visitor spaces can be booked here.
This year we have introduced an advance purchase ticket for both members (£65) and young members (£40). This rate lasts until the 1st August when tickets will revert back to the full price of £70.
The fee for delegates this year is £70 which includes:
- Access to the conference from Friday evening to Sunday lunchtime
- Welcome reception
- Buffet lunch on Saturday
- Tea and coffee throughout the weekend
- Access to all conference sessions, fringe meetings, briefings and training sessions
Delegate places are only available to those who have been elected as delegates by their CLP. Your CLP Secretary should be getting in touch shortly with information on how to do nominate yourself.
We will be having our annual gala dinner on the Saturday night. CLP delegates/visitors can attend this subject to availability for the ticket price of £50. This dinner will be oversubscribed, so please do book your dinner tickets when you register your delegates and visitors. You can do this on the enclosed forms or using this online form.
This year, we will be hosting a special young members event on the Friday afternoon. During the event, we’ll hear from a Shadow Cabinet Minister and key regional politicians. You’ll be able to share and discuss future policy ideas that affect young people. And you can take part in community campaigning and young activist training so you can help Labour engage with young people in your area. Young member weekend tickets can be purchased for £40 or Friday only tickets can be purchased for £20. Please click here to apply.
On the Saturday evening, we will also be launching our new Labour East Local Government Network (LELGN). Please click here for more information.
